Marotta Controls, a rapidly growing aerospace and defence supplier, has received the Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems (RMS) Elite Supplier Award.

This accolade takes into consideration a variety of factors, including delivery of reliable, quality parts, products, and services on time and at competitive prices; the alignment of supplier’s values with Lockheed Martin values; and the supplier’s track record of proactively solving problems.

Marotta Controls’ Marine Business Unit is among 37 suppliers receiving this honour.

“This most recent award acknowledges the strength of our long-standing relationship with Lockheed Martin as a whole in which trust, collaboration, and on-time/on-budget delivery have been standard practices, across divisions and programmes,” said Bill Dimas, VP, business development, Marotta Controls.

“Our work with the RMS division extends our commitment to Lockheed’s success, and our designation as an Elite Supplier recognises the hard work and dedication that goes into ensuring that we deliver on our promises – every time.”

Marotta’s Elite Supplier Award accomplishment is a result of Marotta’s contributions to the Aegis Combat System, the Navy’s most modern surface combat system.

It was designed as a complete system: the missile launching element, the computer programs, the radar, and the displays are fully integrated to work together. This makes the Aegis system the first fully integrated combat system built to defend against advanced air and surface threats.

Marotta designs, develops, manufactures, and qualifies high-performance motion and flow control solutions for surface ships, submarines, and deep submergence vessels.

The company’s components and systems meet stringent naval requirements and MIL standards for shock, vibration, and low acoustic signature as well as resistance to seawater corrosion.

Having pioneered next-generation technologies that use advanced materials and embedded electronics, Marotta has reduced the weight, life cycle cost, size, and corrosion sensitivity of these critical parts.
